Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab27786 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-RNA Helicase A antibody (ab26271)
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

FunctionUnwinds double-stranded DNA and RNA in a 3' to 5' direction. Alteration of secondary structure may subsequently influence interactions with proteins or other nucleic acids. Functions as a transcriptional activator. Component of the CRD-mediated complex that promotes MYC mRNA stability.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DEAD box helicase family. DEAH subfamily.
Contains 2 DRBM (double-stranded RNA-binding) domains.
Contains 1 helicase ATP-binding domain.
Contains 1 helicase C-terminal domain.
DomainThe MTAD domain mediates interaction with the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme. The NTD domain is necessary and sufficient for nucleo-cytoplasmic shuttling and interaction with HRMT1L2 and SMN1.
modificationsMethylated. HRMT1L2 mediated methylation of undefined Arg residues in the NTD is required for nuclear localization.
May be phosphorylated by PRKDC/XRCC7. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationNucleus > nucleolus. Cytoplasm. Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs. Can shuttle between nucleus and cytoplasm.
